Bid Blessin' Adieu.
Scientists may have recently discovered some organic matter on the Philae lander, which currently resides on the surface of a comet named 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In other words: They might've found life in space — or enough evidence of it, maybe, that they're not ruling out the possibility that other extraterrestrial life exists.
Still, it'll be eons before the microbial space life as we know it evolves enough to come invading our little planet. Meaning? It's totally safe to go out tonight completely free of alien attack.
Enjoy it while you can. — Evan Henry

Widespread Panic at Winspear Opera House
Jerry's dead. The Grateful Dead called it a day over the weekend. And don't get us started on Phish. Guess that makes Widespread the last of the Big 3 jam bands worth your time. The outfit will noodle around a few hours at this intimate show. — Cory Graves
The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio at Alamo Drafthouse
With an IMDB viewer rating of only 4.2, the 1971 The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio isn't something to take too seriously, but more something to see as a lark. Alamo Drafthouse is screening it tonight from its original camera negative. It's been described as a “film made by people who have never seen a movie before.” So whats the charm? It's got over-the-top gore with “blood” that doesn't look unlike ketchup and plenty of sleezy, cult-slasher style sex polluting the plot. If you're into the old Tromaville flicks, you'll enjoy this one. — Diamond Victoria
Blessin's Last Show at Rubber Gloves
